Ps. by the way...I have to give kudos to those guys for thinking outside the box....it takes certain creativity to push the boundaries of anything....whoever they are...you have to admire their unusual thinking....
whats considered spamming ? what if i mess up 10 attacks in a row and have to recall so i get the perfect timings and ratio you cannot determine players intentions or read minds thats obsurd thefore a ban might still be valid but still unjustified.You can solve the spamming very easily and without limiting the game....make it a punishable offence where once a player reports you for spamming then you get a attackable ban.
that sounds not good, because who determines the number were normal atting ends and spam begins? for me its funny if i get 100 or 200 atts, for my brother would be 10 to much for example, the problem is if you have a number of a limit player will go near to that limit and spam and freeze you legallyYou can solve the spamming very easily and without limiting the game....make it a punishable offence where once a player reports you for spamming then you get a attackable ban.
Subject: Spam Attacking
Definition: Attacking and recalling attacks persistently with the purpose to annoy an enemy and desensitize them to their attack alarm.
This tactic is not in the good spirit of the game and not what I think InnoGames intended the game to be. I would like to start a conversation here to end the tactic. The game has made great players quit because their mobile alarm gets blown up daily. Attacks should be attacks, not pestering due to the alarm. I think changing this would improve the game and prevent abuse of the game mechanics.
If this is all you got to complain about about a war game then you might want to play something else. Doing a war game like the saying goes all is fair. Buck up mate or move on.
The strategy is to win a city, war is irritating the act of war isn't game compatible some action of members aren't going to be to your liking, the game has changed over time because people don't play it as designed, that is and will always be the real issue playing Grepolis.
The short answer is no they can’t. Right now our mods currently can’t (wont) handle issues even if people admit they’re breaching the rules.hey guys my team members are constantly getting spammed and there are around 300 of us ready to quit the game due to 1 person with multiple accounts spamming his ban has been lifted and straight away he spams again can you not block his ip address some thing has to be done please
1) I would recommend reducing cancellation time to 2 minsThe short answer is no they can’t. Right now our mods currently can’t (wont) handle issues even if people admit they’re breaching the rules.
4) As for my criticism of this post, here's my thoughts to it:
Spam will NEVER be eliminated. Ever. THIS.IS.A.WAR.GAME. I pray to God that a bunch of the snowflakes who cry about being spammed (wholly, partially, or even just attacked a lot) never join any military service of any kind for your country. You will never make it. In war, there is no pause. There is no "hey man I'm tired can you stop shooting at me please? I haven't slept in 72 hours". There is no breaks, there is no letting your guard down. There is no "safe space" or places of peace and calmness. This game runs 24/7. Just as life and REAL war does in real life. Spam attacks in real life look like Guerrilla Warfare. You know how that's handled? You bomb them back to the stone age. So how do you do this in game? As someone else suggested, you get your alliance to bomb them with attacks, negative spells, cave drains, and CS launches. Literally remove them from the game and rim them. It's not hard. I've done it PLENTY of times to people who abuse the spam. I spam myself when I did play (far less towards the end of me playing), but always respectably.
But if this was a matter of life and death, respect would go out the window. This is a game, with a "Win" at the end of it. If you're not willing to win, or do whatever it takes to win, then sign off. The frustration and stress of the game will instantly be gone and you'll be much better off anyways. Especially with how the game has turned into a "pay to win" from it's former older days [years ago].
There are people who will WANT to win, and WILL do whatever it takes to do so. Which means, spam YOU. If you're not okay with that, then don't play. It's part of the game. Just as is losing your cities, your units, your resources and favor. It happens. If you cannot get on board with this, then this is not the game for you. Period.
so your suggestion is to send a bunch of spam attacks back as a response with 2 days TT . It will work ofcourse . But i dont intend to be part of the SPAM community . I just want to be part of the playing community that's actively seeking the common goal - win WW or Domination.Spam attacks in real life look like Guerrilla Warfare. You know how that's handled?

1) Yes. Those on the "edge of the universe" just in general are cowards. More so if they spam. But what's great is that the system I suggested would force those to land and eventually be utterly pointless to send unless you want an enemy to earn literal free BP. So, IF the Devs & MODs can figure out to get it to work, the "EOTU" people will immediately decline. As will their spam.Agreed its a war . So no one gets to complain about spam .
Its also a game . So we expect sportsmanship.
Do you agree that in a war game you fight in the front lines and not go to the edge of universe ?
hence our recommendation to make the world closer.

Your other recommendations are great by the way . Even if spam isnt eliminated we can curb it and make it less effective. so the playing community can play.
PS: i really wish that this discussion doesnt become a spam thread with nonsensical posts.
I agree with what you mentionedThis game isn't won by "hey guys, I'm trying to win, can you guys make sure that happens and don't attack me or make my life stressful please?" GTHO of here snowflake. I understand you want to win by "fair play", but Spam IS fair play. Always has been. And so long as this game is a war game, it always will be.
4) I appreciate that though. But you need to understand that if you're not willing to do whatever it takes to win, you won't.
Lol, I was more speaking to the mentality of "don't attack me/spam me" vs you lol. Idk you (nor you me) in game but I didn't have you pegged as a snowflake. I trash talk a lot and call many people snowflakes haha. Drives everyone up a wall. You should've seen last EN world I played. Myth nukes for days breaking EVERY siege and tore apart 3 alliances because they couldn't grow with me around haha! I like you though, we can be friends.I agree with what you mentioned
If spam is considered legit - I am cool with it . The spammer then shouldnt justify when everyone gangs up on him/her . The Spam & CO basically justify their SPAM as a retaliation for being attacked. My response to all the above threads is just for people who are cowards sitting in the RIM Spamming yet calling themselves as legendary fighters - no one else.
by the way big ol' grand daddy - I ain't a snow flake . "My D*&k is bigger than yours " - see I just managed to offend you and yet stay within the forum rules . Inno's game and Inno's rules if you get banned for profanity in forrum then like you said " Dont Cry"
Same . Not playing these days due to RL. You might want to edit the previous post , some kids take delight in getting people banned for friendly profanity too.You should've seen last EN world I played. Myth nukes for days breaking EVERY siege and tore apart 3 alliances because they couldn't grow with me around haha! I like you though, we can be friends.
To see ports one does not send LS attacks to other cities. And if someone does it with that intention, he is saying that he knows little or nothing about the game.
Someone who sends 5,10,20, ... LS attacks from the same city to other cities the only thing that is intended is to bother.
This action is corrected by expelling the player from the world in which he does it.
